Amoroso Guitar Duo's music highlights the lyricism and beauty found in late 20th-century South American music. Romantic era harmonies are combined with rhythms of tango, milonga, vals and merengue and the endearing melodic traditions of Brazil, Venezuela and Argentina. Amoroso presents sensual readings of Pujol, Jobim, Piazzolla, Montes and uncovers jewels of the Latinate world by Timoteo and Nogueira, composers little known outside South America. Guitar arrangements of Canta Mais and La Partida underscore the warmth inherent in this music, and the passionate renderings of Libertango, Adios Nonino and Tango de Abril reveal how close the guitar's voice was to the heartbeat of modern tango. The intimacy of tunes such as Montes' Cancion and Pujol's Café para Dos settles the recording into the romantic ethos alive today in South American guitar music.
